Chalkboard Project

Chalkboard Project is FBO's first initiative and is dedicated to researching, piloting, and advocating for meaningful statewide education policy changes. 


After careful research, Chalkboard has found that teachers and school leaders are the most important in-school factors for improving student achievement. Accordingly, Chalkboard's primary target is to improve the effectiveness of classroom teachers and school leaders through statewide policy changes, advance proven educational practices and increase the accountability and stability of our schools by: 

  • Providing independent research as the basis for transformation
  • Partnering with educators and experts to design and implement pilot programs
  • Serving as a nonpartisan advocate for best-practice education reforms.
